Rafael, you do not write better than I do: not even close. You didn’t write better than I did at age 27 either.
There’s something seriously, extremely vastly fucked-up in the universe when I can sell 5 books of something I spent a lifetime doing, and you can get thousands of views by writing something that pretty much every guy who ever thought they “wanted to be a writer” would write and hand out in “creative writing” class.
People pay hundreds of dollars for “HelloFresh” which is in reality moldy vegetables, low quality protein and poor nutrition recipes. So there you have it. I skimmed what you wrote. Because I have read it hundreds and hundreds of times before.
It was only 2008. And Randy died for real.
